Should have been given a chance to really flourish in central midfield for us.

 

Saw him play a reserve game at Port Vale back in the days of Steve MacLean etc - he was so far ahead of the others in terms of vision and passing ability he looked like a genuine international class player.

 

Battle of the vision and passing ability.

 

Bannan v Palmer 

lol

 

Agree should have been given more of a chance in midfield

 but wouldn't go as far as international class.

Interesting over the years where I sit, same people who think Palmer is worthy of a place also though Sean McAllister was a good player at the time!!

Was a much better passer then Palmer will ever be.

Seems to have lost some confidence second half of season.

 

Maybe he reads Owlstalk.

Maybe just not very good

Jesus wept. Some of the comments in this thread?!

 

Liam Palmer is a league 1 player, its as simple as that. So is Morgan Fox for that matter. Nothing against the lad but he is not good enough for where we want to be.

We could move Palmer back into centre midfield imo, and bring in a new upgrade to compete with Hunt.

When we had Sean McAllister we really were at bare bones and had no alternative.

 

He did well and maybe his career nosedived because of being dropped in at the deep end with us, in other circumstances he really could have become a player.

This 100%.  It's ALL about where we want to be. For some sides he'd be ok.

Played 136 games in the championship and 66 in league 1 under various managers. Can't be all that bad can he?Admittedly he isn't premier league, but he is a solid championship right back. One of our own which most other clubs fans would back and celebrate. A decent back up right back imo.

He’s another one who will never get consistency because he doesn’t play every week. He probably needs a move elsewhere but not to the blades.

Genuine question: when did our managers say Palmer was good enough to play in the top flight?

 

I must have missed those comments.

You aren't the only one

No longer a kid, and with quite a bit of game time under his belt.

 

Does he have a future with SWFC?

 

Persistently manager after manager at Wednesday have said he is technically good enough to play top flight, yet often he is considered a weak link?

 

Turned to full back, even after a successful full season in the heart of midfield out on loan (more first team starts for Tranmere than any other time in his career)

 

I ask because i've just been told, rather jokingly, that the pigs are in for him - but I personally think like a lot of players, he could fulfill his potential here with the correct mentoring - just like it seems Nuhiu has.

 

I know most comments will be "not good enough, get rid" but I do wonder why so many have suggested he is good enough to play higher level?

 

 

Nope, he’s pants!

I'm sure the OP's not making it up (why would he?), but these comments have completely passed me by. If he or anyone else could find them, I'd love to read them in order to work out what kind of illegal substances our various managers had been consuming whilst making them!

 

Palmer's a decent squad player in the Championship, but I've seen nothing to suggest he's destined for the top level.

This season has been his worst 

 

The Ipswich home game - disgustingly bad

Endlessly naive, bone idle and nowhere near as good defensively as people suggest. 

 

A free transfer beckons

Exactly this - we are so desperate for  one of our own to make it that we cling onto players like Palmer who are nowhere near good enough
